    May 2010: CaptainsVoyage Forum Monthly Digital Photo Competition.

    May 2010: CaptainsVoyage Forum Monthly Digital Photo Competition.

    A brand new digital photo competition will now be opened for the next month, May 2010. As usual, we strongly urge all participants to use their special eye and try thinking "out of the box" to make that very special image.

    You can use whatever settings you like, whatever equipment you decide (even a Nikon ... ), whatever photo-editing program you choose, to make your image an award winning image.

    We kindly ask you not to just throw in any random image, but instead put some thought into it, and place only your very best shot(s) within the theme.

    In February last year, the theme was red, so this year, we pick a new color.

    MAY 2010 THEME: "CELEBRATION".

    ***

    We repeat the usual 4 standard rules of engagement (apart from that we have now set a maximum of 3 images per user):

    1/ A maximum of 3 entries per user, within this months theme.

    2/ Number your images consequently starting at MAY-001, then MAY-002 and so on (we kindly ask you to please make sure you enter the correct number as it makes it so much easier for me at month's end... )

    3/ Find an appropriate but short title for your image (makes it easier to remember when we are going to cast a vote).

    4/ The image must naturally be taken be yourself.

    Competition closes on May 25th!


    Need some inspiration? Make an online search via sites such as for example google, photobucket or/and flickr to see if you can find any tips!

    .... and yes, GOOD LUCK to all participants!

    Pictures from the 'Landshuter Hochzeit' (explantation see below)

    MAY-001 mercenaries with headman



    MAY-002 flagbearers with 'throwing flags'



    MAY-003 knights bachelor at tournament




    The 'Landshuter Hochzeit':
    The 'Landshuter Hochzeit' (means the Landshut wedding) is the biggest middle age festival in Europe. It happend every four
    years and was act by the population of Landshut, no proffesionals. The whole town celebrates for three weeks the wedding from
    1475, the son of Ludwig "the rich" was married with Hedwig from Poland. There are a lot of single events, the bridal pageant,
    Knightly games, Camplife, festival and dance play and a lot of other spectacle. The participants has to live the same as in 1475,
    means no armwatches, no glasses, no mobiles ..... , because in 1475 there were nothing similar.

      I thought it seemed familiar. I was about to submit a picture and then thought "I've done this before". A bit of continuity with May 2009.

              Reminder to everyone, that the competition only has 7 more days to run!

              I find it hard to imagine so few have images which could fit under this topic!
